Jody Stecher & Kate Brislin
Stecher is quite simply an extraordinary musician and invaluable national resource. A multi instrumentalist capable of dazzling playing an a multitude of stringed instruments including fiddle guitar mandolin and banjo, Stecher has been a sideman to David Bromberg and Jerry Jeff Walker as well as Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. He is a singer of stunning depth, able to give traditional Appalachian songs a deeply personal feel and transport the listener to a different time and place. Stecher often works with singer/multi-instrumentalist Kate Brislin, who is a star in her own right on the West Coast Country-Folk & Bluegrass scene and has played with a veritable who's who of Progressive Bluegrass and folk performers such as Tim O'Brien, Laurie Lewis and Mike Seeger.
